Reader comment on item: Time to Profile Airline Passengers?
in response to reader comment: Plight of Passengers

You both bring up very cogent points - Muslims disrupting flights - resulting in huge financial, psychic and social costs. How about the 2 guys in Spain (ready to board a plane to England) whose behavior (nervous watch checking and lots of cell phone calls .. jackets piled on top of sweaters in warm summer weather .. not to mention a cultivated anti-social appearance) who felt "misunderstood" after causing people to file off the plane rather than risk their lives traveling with those 2 .

Why were they "misunderstood"? Well, reportedly, they were only "having a bit of fun" (pretending to be terrorists). And they were let off with vast apologies!!! They should be made to compensate in full the airline and the families whose lives they disrupted .. but until the rest of the world shows the same amount of gumption as those sensible English people who disembarked the flight .. justice will not be served and social misfits will be petted on the head and offered apologies.
